July 7, 2013 Service: Jesus and Our Demons
In Luke 8:26-39 a man possessed by demons cries out to Jesus in fear, "What do you want with me?" In her communion meditation, Rev. Irene Pak explains that our demons are what tell us that we are not worthy to be children of God. These demons are afraid of Jesus; afraid that we might forgive someone we don't want to forgive. Pak encourages us to welcome Jesus saying, "In Christ we are forgiven. In Christ we are set free."
